Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Hide The Blemish Concealer in Ivory 001
rojetor 3/7/2013 1:58:00 AM
Ugh this concealer is awful. It is extremely heavy and cakey, and it doesn't last very long at all. It's very difficult to blend as well, it kinda just sits as a big heavy lump on spots. I do really like the packaging, it makes it easy to apply and I like being able to carry it around. I do use this as an eyeshadow primer like the other suggestions, and it does do a great job of that but as a concealer it's really not great.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Problem Cuticle Remover
rojetor 3/7/2013 1:51:00 AM
This was just okay for me. I've never used a cuticle remover before, but since I grew my nails out after chewing them all my life I've actually liked painting them and taking care of them. I applied this to my cuticles then pushed them back with an orange stick. I do like how gentle this was on my nails and how soft they felt after, but I feel like that's the opposite of what this is supposed to do. It didn't really last long at all, I found that after a few days my cuticles would move up and I'd end up with polish underneath them somehow. I'm going to use what I have but won't be repurchasing.
This is easily the worst dry shampoo I've ever used. This left my hair greasier than before I used it. I could actually feel the grease and residue left on my hair after spraying this, it was nasty. It did give me lots of volume for some reason but definitely not worth the dirty looking hair. I do like that it doesn't smell like chemicals like others (the original Batiste). Will never repurchase!
I love this concealer! This colour is a perfect match to my skin tone. I use this concealer for both dark spots as well as over correctors (mainly corrector for my undereye circles but also green corrector when I break out). It covers both well, but it doesn't cover acne spots as well as others I've used. I love how easy it blends into my skin, and I don't find it cakey at all. Just be careful if you put the cap on the back of the pencil. I did this and when I took the cap off the back the plug in the back came off as well, and it wouldn't go back in. I had to depot it which was also pretty easy but kind of annoying, I wouldn't have expected the pencil to break that easily. Overall this is a great concealer!
I love this polish!! The colour is a really nice pink that I can wear with almost any outfit. I wear this polish to work a lot, it's probably my favourite work appropriate polish because it's not just a boring neutral that I wear all the time. The brush is great, I can get most of my nail in one streak. It doesn't chip easily, usually a few days before it starts chipping on me (I always wear it with a base and top coat), which is longer than most polishes last on my nails. This polish is definitely worth the cheap price!
This brush is just bad. It does not apply evenly but more annoying to me is it sheds all over my face whenever I use it! Whenever I wash it so many bristles fall out too. I regret buying this, it was really expensive and just overall a horrible brush. I am giving it two lippies just because I like the general shape of it, I just wish it was better quality.
I needed to find an eyebrow product after an unfortunate waxing accident removed part of my eyebrow, so I looked up the reviews and found this product. I went out right away to get this and I was very happy!! The Hazel shade is a perfect colour for my auburn/red eyebrows. I was worried it would look really fake, but it doesn't! It just looks like my natural eyebrows. This is the first eyebrow product I have ever used and it was extremely easy to figure out. I was also really worried about smudging if I accidentally rubbed it, but so far that has never happened. I love the little brush on the cap! I've had this for probably six months, I use it daily and I have already bought a backup!! I hope they never discontinue this because it is the perfect pencil for me!!
My hair is a dull red, but when I spend a lot of time outside in the sun it lightens and I get natural lighter streaks. This is what I was trying to achieve with this product, and it definitely worked! It made my hair just look brighter, and softer. It added subtle light to darker parts of my hair, and I love the way it looks! My hair is also so much softer whenever I use this. I'm currently on my third bottle. I just hate the smell, it is disgusting. I want to gag whenever I open the container, but aside from that I love this product. It is a little expensive in my opinion, but I don't use that much at a time so it's not so bad. I'm really glad I bought this! I just love the way it makes my hair look.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Complex 15 Therapeutic Face Cream
rojetor 2/27/2013 12:53:00 AM
This is also known as Complex 15 Daily Face Cream in Canada, and this moisturizer has changed my skin. I am very acne prone, and break out to most face lotions. It's really annoying and frustrating because I have dry skin so I need to moisturize a lot. I never thought my moisturizer could be breaking me out, but when I switched to this some of my acne disappeared within a few days. This lotion doesn't leave a greasy residue on my skin, it soaks right in. Also, this is the perfect moisturizer to mix with foundation because it isn't greasy and doesn't smell bad. I do wish this moisturized a little more, but it's still a great lotion! If you are acne prone definitely give this lotion a try!
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
rojetor 2/27/2013 12:34:00 AM
Wow this product is amazing for my hair!! I straighten/blow dry my hair a lot more than I should, and this stuff is the only reason my hair isn't a complete frizz ball. I spray it on while it's damp, then dry and straighten my hair as usual and my hair is always noticeably shinier, smoother, and just in general looks healthier. I love it!!! It is really inexpensive too, the spray nozzle is really handy. It only takes a few seconds, it is so easy to use! I personally don't like the smell, but that's just my own personal preference and doesn't detract from the product at all. Overall this is an amazing hair product!!
I love these wipes! I received these as a gift in the package of two. They are very gentle on my skin, and remove my makeup without too much effort on my part. They are dry but I actually like that, it doesn't leave any moisture on my face like some others do. The cloth itself is really soft and a really nice size. A great product for someone who prefers gentle cloths!
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit Body Butter
rojetor 2/27/2013 12:02:00 AM
I actually really like this product!! If you do not like the smell of grapefruit then don't buy this one because the smell is very prominent. The butter itself is a really pretty light pink colour, and moisturises really well. Overall a great product! I would definitely buy this again.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush # 57
rojetor 2/26/2013 2:01:00 AM
I'm in love with this brush. I have really dark under eye circles and I never knew how to cover them. I always just used my fingers to apply any concealer, but this brush makes such a difference! It blends beautifully, and is definitely worth the cost. I usually stick to ecotools brushes, but when the SA at sephora used this to apply concealer I had to buy it, and I am glad I did! It blends my concealer so it is barely noticeable, and not cakey like when I used my fingers. Amazing brush for under eye concealer!
I actually really like this trio! I've been using this product for a year I would say. I have used all of the lightest shade, I love using this as a highlighter! I think this is a really versatile trio. I also like to use the darkest shade as a liner, as well as a crease shade. The shadows are pigmented, and pretty easy to blend. As a beginner this trio helped me a lot :)
Eye Shadow -Rimmel - Colour Rush Quad in Smoky Purple
rojetor 2/23/2013 1:20:00 AM
Ugh this quad is just awful. The colours barely show up, and when they do they are chalky and do not blend. The lightest colours look the same too, there is no difference in them and the dark purple is really dark! They are either so light they don't show up or extremely dark. Just avoid this quad, it is awful.
